Blind steal turned draw
 
Villain is a habitual blind stealer, but seems sensible postflop. He is rather aggressive. I haven't been defending my blinds too much, so I expected preflop to be an easy resteal spot. Villain is button and I'm in the SB with K[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] J[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img]. 1/2 blinds with $200 stacks.

Preflop: Button (villain) opens for $7, I reraise to $17, BB folds, villain calls.

Flop ($36): Q[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] T[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] 8[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img]
I check, villain bets $20, I call.

Turn ($76): J[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img]
I check, villain checks.

River ($76): T[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img]
I check, villain bets $40, I fold.

It feels like I misplayed every street postflop.

y reraise preflop if u dont plan on leading the flop

i would bet this flop 1/2 2/3 of the pot

then on turn bet 2/3 or pot

now maybe this guy will easy off your blinds

Why would you ever reraise this preflop, then not follow up with a bet on basically every flop- let alone a flop in which you made a draw.

It looks like you had a little hiccup of aggression for the preflop, then went into a shell for the rest of the hand. Raise more preflop if you are going to play this crap, then bet the flop hard.

Even vs a blind stealer... Fold KJo.

KJo is pretty nasty, and its likely fold > raise > call, but once you decided to go with the raise given your read and whatnot, you absolutely have to lead this flop.

I have no idea why you included "postflop" in that sentence.

My favorite line against these "types" of opponents OOP is check/call the flop, lead the turn for 3/4 - full pot size. It works a lot. If you happened to be called, you can check the river and usually expect a check behind as well.

If you plan on staying on this table for a while the re-rasie with KJ is good imo. You're letting him know you'll mix it up and he can't continue to raise you, but even more important, you can do this when you catch a really good hand and use it later. Honestly I do this every so often with almost any two from the blinds and then show, but you have to plan on using it later or it's just not worth it online.

[/ QUOTE ] Betting only half the pot indicates weakness after a preflop raise. At least 2/3 or PSB. Preflop raise with KJo is weak. If so, however, make it 21.

Raise more preflop, bet the flop. Go from there. I sure hope you play AA this way sometimes, if this is how you resteal.
